Double-Stuffed Cookie Dough Oreos

A copycat of the new limited edition Oreo cookie dough filled cookies. The cookie dough frosting is eggless and the cookies are crisp, thin, no-spread cookies.

So, guess what hit the shelves two days ago? Um only like the coolest, new, limited-edition oreo flavors. Otherwise known as Cookie Dough Oreos and Marshmallow Crispy Oreos. … Are you freaking out as much as I am?!

Unfortunately, I have not picked up my own cookie dough oreos yet, but couldn’t wait. So, I created my own! In fact, I saw some early release pictures of these new flavors a couple weeks ago and have been experimenting ever since. I’m working on some Marshmallow Crispy flavored oreos, but so far have been unsuccessful. But just you wait, I will get them down and they will be good!

Clearly I can’t claim to compare these cookies to the new oreo cookies because I haven’t tried them. But let me tell you one thing – oreo has yet to come out with a double stuffed cookie dough oreo edition.

Which I’m totally bringing you today. I mean, if you make the cookies and the frosting – then you can totally pick how much frosting to smoother in between the two cookies. And I chose to stuff in quite a bit.

After all, the frosting totally steals the show. I mean, it’s eggless cookie dough!! In frosting form. In between two thin cookies. Basically I’m in love.

Ingredients
Cookies:
  • 1 and 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • Scant 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp. vegetable shortening
  • 3-4 tbsp. water (add 1 tbsp. at a time)
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp. black gel food coloring
Cookie Dough Frosting
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 and 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp. milk (I used 2%)
  • 1/4 cup miniature chocolate chip (or more depending on preference)
Instructions
Cookies
  1. Combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, cocoa powder, and cornstarch in a large bowl. Stir.
  2. Melt the shortening completely. Beat in the shortening and egg. Then slowly add in the water 1 tbsp at a time until a thick dough forms.
  3. Be patient as you may have to work with mixing and kneading the dough until it comes together (don't add too much water too soon). One batch I used 3 tbsp and another I used 4 tbsp.
  4. Stir in the black gel coloring and then knead to get the rest of the dough completely colored black.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge while you prepare the frosting.
  6. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  7. When the frosting is done, unwrap the dough and roll out the dough in between two sheets of parchment paper. Roll it to about 1/16th inch thickness and cut out small circles. Place the circles on a tray and place in the freezer for 5 minutes. Then remove from the freezer and bake for about 7-8 minutes (This will vary based on the size of circles you've made and the thickness)
  8. Remove the cookies from the tray immediately (or they stick) and on to a cooling rack
Cookie Dough Frosting
  1. In a medium-sized bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar with hand mixers.
  2. Mix in the salt, vanilla extract, and flour. Beat until combined.
  3. Slowly add in half of the powdered sugar and then 1 tbsp. of the milk. Add in the rest of the powdered sugar and the rest of the milk.
  4. Beat until all combined making sure to scrape down the sides with a spatula.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Putting it together
  1. Once the cookies have completely cooled, spread as much frosting as desired on one cookie. Place another cookie on top.
  2. Store in an airtight container for up to one week and freeze dough up to 3 months.

These are really yummy too:

    Ah, yay! I have been freaking out since I saw the photos too. I haven’t bought any yet either, but clearly these have more cookie dough, which can only make them better! Love that you’ve made a homemade version of these so soon and can’t wait to see your marshmallow crispy version!

    I saw these on FB this morning and instantly went to the kitchen to make! Other than the frosting being a little too sweet (too much powdered sugar, maybe?) these were SO delicious!!!
